Hello fellow S.T.A.L.K.E.R.S...

I want to take a moment of your precious hunting time to introduce my newest project, Photo Realistic Zone². Many of you know the original mod, made by Argus, and consisted of the "Structures" pack and the "Creatures" pack. I took both of these textures packs, with some other high resolution textures from Cromm Cruac and merged them all together, as a base for my mod.

Now, I didn't take the textures from various packs, merged them and took credit for them. I followed various texturing tutorials, recognizing different materials, usability of photo's, making my own textures with various other textures, making seamless textures etc. etc. I've come a far way, from making my very first weapon skins to my latest works.

"There is a lot more to texturing than you think. You need to have a keen eye for shapes and design, you need to know traditional art theory, you need to be great at observing and picking apart things, and you need to know how to balance your shapes, among many other skills." - racer455
So with that in mind, I'd like to welcome you to my newest project, old followers, newcomers, everyone. Please, be sure to leave as much feedback as possible so I can imrpove even more. I need you guys in order to make a balanced texture pack, because I am sure most of you guys wont agree on every new texture I make.

So again, welcome both old and new, to the Photo Realistic Zone²


This mod will be compatible with every mod.

Sad news S.T.A.L.K.E.R.S.
22nd, Feb: Welcome. I am not pleased with the GF download service at all, and rest assure I didn't just sit around and did nothing. I've send an email at the staff regarding the issue and I hope to hear back from them soon.For now, grazegrabber has put up an alternative link to a torrent. Because my internet is slow, uploading takes half a day for me, so I can't spend the time uploading the parts to other sites. We just have to wait a bit. The zone's testing our patience.

In regard of the blocked countries, here is the list:

About the User.ltx

It's pretty simple to tweak the user.ltxMy user.ltx is linked here. Do mind that you can't directly use my config, because of the custom keybindings with my gaming mouse and resoltion. But, you can read this article on how to change your user.ltx (albeit ingame, or in notepad) and what line does what. I'd advise you not to go overboard :)And there are some handy tricks to doing the stuff in game, just type "r1" and use "TAB" to go through the commands!

I'm getting this error when moving from the Garbage to Agroprom that says my graphics card has to support pixel shader 1.1 or higher. Any solutions?

What other mods are you running? This is only a problem when you're using custom shaders (AA2.1 for example?)

If you want, send me a PM with the error log and we'll work through it!

Sorry I took so long to reply. I was using the custom shaders that came with your mod. I'm now using another set of shaders and I haven't had the same error :)

I should also mention that your mod made my SHoC experience even better that it has ever been.

Disabling Soft Water Edges fixed it for me.

Go to game directory then gamedata\shaders\r2\SkyGraphics_options.cfg

find line:

#define USE_SOFT_WATER // Enable/Disable the use of soft water edges

edit to:

// #define USE_SOFT_WATER // Enable/Disable the use of soft water edges

save and enjoy your Stalker experience.

Incredible texture work by Loner1. Truly, it is brilliant and with his modified renderer the results are simply awesome. You have to experience it to understand. Makes the game stand with the best of the best to be honest, Thanks so much.
